Harry Clarke Completely Loses The Plot

Harry doesn’t want to ban smoking, oh no. He’s not crazy, after all.

He just wants smokers to have to register themselves with a government agency in order to be able to buy cigarettes!

You know, like Heroin Addicts and Sex Offenders.

This might be achieved by registering cigarette smokers who are addicted to nicotine as addicts just as it has been proposed to register heroin addicts. These addicts would then be supplied weekly supplies of the amount of tobacco needed from pharmacies which would be the only place where cigarettes were sold.

Harry just made the leap from eccentric crank to bat-shit-crazy loon.

    I’d sign up if I only had to pay a buck a pack.

    I think I prefer bat-shit-crazy loon.

  4. Sam Ward Says:

    Is that because you’re a keen birdwatcher?

    Note: Birdwatching is a popular hobby among batshit-crazy-eccentrics.

    Harry’s a nanny-statist knob

    Is Harry starting up a sister-party to the British political party – The Monster Raving Loony Party – http://www.omrlp.com/, by any chance?

  7. Redmond Says:

    I’m all for it.

    The potential smokers fill out a registration form and declare that they realise that smoking may damage their health.

    They further declare that they take full personal responsibility for any adverse health outcomes from smoking, and that will not sue anybody, or expect compensation, or any tax-payer funded benefit.

    Then they can puff away as much as they like.

    Oh Dear! unless I am mistaken Redmond is more living proof of how sucessfull wowser propaganda has been. He thinks smokers use up tax – payer funds, a very common belief acheived by constantly advising what came out the till and not mentioning what went in. Smokers in fact are massive net contibutors to public funds, not to mention private profit. A gob stopping 6.5 Billion in Tax revenue against a the most pessimistic (Assigning practically anything conceivably tobbacco caused e.g. He smoked a dury behind the bike shed aged 15 and died at 85 of Lung Cancer) of perhaps 2 Billion, meaning non-smokers (and that’s me too) get about 4.5 Billion thrown into the tax slush fund for free. Hell! and all that’s before we even deduct off the savings made from smokers shorter lives meaning lower pension payout per person.

    The wowsers are going a long way in making people think drinkers also “use” up tax funds and it’s the same old process.

    Will the same registration allow us to drink, eat a burger, rockclimb and watch uncensored movies?

    We could call it the “adults” register, and anyone not on it doesn’t get to use that word.

    Interestingly Harry is now supporting a call for all pokies players to carry cards so they can be tracked.
